Important information about Sapporo car hire

How do I get from Sapporo Chitose Airport (CTS) to the hire car centre?

The car hire centre at Sapporo Chitose Airport is located east of the airport terminals, on the opposite side of the car park, and can be reached via the airport shuttle bus or on foot. To get to the hire car centre by shuttle bus, you will want to take the airport's free shuttle service. It offers two options: the main terminal service and the domestic terminal service. The main terminal service is the faster of the two, as it drops passengers off closer to the hire car centre. The service runs roughly every 5 minutes between the main terminal and the hire car centre, and around every 10 minutes between the domestic terminal and the hire car centre; it’s free for all passengers. If you prefer to walk to the hire car centre, the walk will take about 15-20 minutes.
